Surf Report for Bank Holiday Monday 31st August 2015

At 6.20 a.m:

Constantine (2*):  0 to 1 foot



There’s a chilly north nor’ easterly wind whistling across the bay this morning bringing some stinging showers with it, ushering in an autumnal start to the day.
The surf is struggling to show itself in the eight metre high tide, that deep water absorbing the little lines of waves before they dump ashore in a six inch shorewash.
As the tide drops out we should be seeing a foot or two of offshore blown, hollow little waves to glide on, although that wind is blowing stronger than expected or forecast and so it might just blow the surf down a bit.
Give it a couple of hours though and I’m guessing that the sun will be shining and those waves will be fun. Small but cruisy little peelers, especially if you can find some breaks that are sheltered from a northerly wind!



Harlyn (0*):  Flat


It is flat around here this morning, onshore and flat!
The tide is real high and those little ripples that are breaking ashore are windswept and choppy, this north easterly wind blowing straight onshore here.
No, it’s the other side of the headland for some small surf over there this morning!


Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  13:37  (0.3m)              High Tide:  19:31  (8.0m)


Surf Forecast for Tuesday 1st August 2015

Small waves with onshore winds and lots of sunshine are on the menu for today!
And that could be followed by, “if we’re lucky!”!
The wind is forecast to blow in from the north west, a fresh and chilly wind that does nothing for the surf on this stretch of coastline other than make it choppy and sloppy.
Still, it is always nicer to surf small and choppy little waves in clear sunshine than drizzly rain!


Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

After a gloomy and windy start to Monday morning, the rest of the week looks set to be bright and sunny and warm.
Monday’s tiny but clean surf is likely to set the tone for the week too with, at best, only small surf expected throughout.
The wind is likely to be only light for most of the time with high pressure building over us but I’m guessing that we might get into that pattern of gentle breezes in the morning and evenings with stronger and onshore sea breezes through the afternoons.
Still, it could just be a very pleasant week for the kids to finish off their school break offering just a little in the way of good surf too.
Have great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
